The 32-year-old actor who had endorsed the present President, John Dramani Mahama, for second term, had received serious criticism after previously shaming his administration for incompetence.
I never met Nana Addo secretly. The last and only time I saw him was in 2014, 2 clear years ago. #ichoosejdm

“I keep on receiving threatening messages from anonymous persons. They are threatening my life…so many things for making a statement. But I give everything to God. They are issuing the threats on social media, anonymous phone calls and things. ” he stated
Dumelo went on to add that he feels safe at the moment and is yet to report the issue to the police.
”I think it has not gotten to the point of reporting to the security yet. I am a very security conscious person. Wherever I go I just have this security thing around me. I just don’t stay at a particular place at a time”
He added that he is very security conscious and believes he is good on his own for the time being.
